Bread and Butter Pudding

I love comfort food. There I said it. I lurrrrrve comfort food. Now, before the biodegradable pitch forks are raised and pointed at me I should state that unless you have the resting metabolic rate of a super athlete or going through a tough time, eating comfort food  as an occasional meal is a good idea. Like on a weekly cheat day and maybe not on a daily treat yo'self session. I love whipping up a batch of bread and butter pudding when I'm entertaining and never just for myself. Why? Cause I would eat the whole damn thing.  True story.

By the way, if you do have the resting metabolic rate of a super athlete and know how to harvest and transfer those amazing stem cells, hit me up. You bring the cells and I'll bring the food. Seriously.

Bread and Butter Pudding baked in a Nibble bowl

Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices of brioche loaf (either roughly torn or cut into large cubes)
  •  50g unsalted butter, melted, cooled
  •  3 free range eggs
  •  1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar (or less)
  •  300ml pure (thin) cream
  •  300ml milk
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract/paste

Method

Grease 4 Nibble bowls and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Whisk the melted butter, eggs, sugar, cream, milk and vanilla together in a bowl until just combined. Soak the brioche in the mixture for a minute or two, then assemble the pieces of brioch in the nibble bowls. Tip - a bit of height when arranging the bread pieces in the Nibble bowl equals crunchy bits. Are you picking up what I'm putting down? Excellent.

Stand for a minimum of 30 mins, this is to allow the cream mixture to soak in and the flavours to develop.

Bake the pudding for 30 - 35 mins or until just set. Serve by itself or with a dollop of good quality ice cream.

Variations: 

Bowl size - this recipe can suit two Super Cereal bowls

Brioche bread can be swapped for - any type of croissant or raisin bread.

Thin cream - (or commonly knowns as Whipping cream in Australia) I have used light sour cream instead of cream and it turned out perfectly. 

Flavour combos - try orange zest with a smattering of dark chocolate pieces.
